** The existence of RAILWAY TAVERNS at both 33 and 45 North Quay could mean that in the 1860's, the licensees for these houses are transposed, since no street number has yet been found to link the licensees with confirmed address..

Originally the DOLPHIN ?

In court Monday 17th October 1859, beerhouse keeper John Edmonds was charged with having his house open at thirty minutes past midnight, the previous morning and persons drinking therein. His wife appeared and it was proved that the persons were relatives. The charges were dropped, but a caution issued. The house was identified as the EXCURSION TRAIN.

On Monday 24th October 1859, John Edmunds again found himself before the magistrates. His house, the EXCURSION TRAIN, had been found open at fifteen minutes before noon the previous day, and persons drinking therein.

On Monday 21st November 1859, John Edmunds was charged with having his house open on the previous day at prohibited hours. Mrs Edmunds appeared to answer the charge and was let off with a caution.

Known later as the RAILWAY TERMINUS.

RAILWAY INN in 1875
RAILWAY HOTEL in 1881 & 1891

Known as the DISTILLERY in the 1920's it seems.

Included with proposal discussed June 1937, for E. Lacon & Co. to exchange four public houses in return for the Corporation conveying 1) a piece of land, with a frontage of 200 feet, to Marine Parade, Gorleston, at the south-east corner of Bridge Road and 2) a piece of land having a frontage of 150 feet to North Drive and similar frontage to Jellicoe road, Great Yarmouth and 3) a piece of land having 55 feet 1 inch frontage to South Beach Parade and 31 feet to Dickens Avenue. It was expected that three of the licences would be conveyed to the new sites and the fourth licence awarded to an existing beerhouse. (PRINCE CONSORT)
Although the Chief Constable objected and members of the committee opposed the Dickens Avenue proposal, the Mayor pointed out that otherwise Lacons would have to be paid compensation for the loss of going concerns and the matter had been considered by the Council for many months. The Council had a fair bargain and nothing could stand in the way of the development of the clearance areas concerned.

Licence surrendered 11.02.1938 in consideration of a full licence for the GUNNER, South Beach Parade.
